New Age Passover Haroses Or Mixed Fruit Chutney For Roast Turkey Breast
This delectable haroses – the symbolic ‘mortar’ used to sandwich pieces of matzoh together – is a new feature on my Passover table. Apples, cranberries, raisins and cinnamon. No nuts. There are nut allergies in my home and I’m not fond of the traditional mixture at any rate. This haroses is bright, sweet and tart. Great any time with roasted chicken or turkey.
2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
1/2 cup dried cherries
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/3 cup yellow raisins
2 cups coarsely chopped apples
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup water or orange juice
2 tablespoons sweet red wine – optional
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Place everything in a medium saucepan. Over low-medium heat, cook cranberries and apples. Adjust tartness to taste with more orange juice and sugar if you wish. Cook until mixture is thick. Cool well.
Makes about 1 3/4 cups. Keep refrigerated up until one week.
Serve as a side with meats.
